Lupercalia is a Merlin/Arthur knotting story using the Alpha/Omega trope.

Summary: Canon AU. On his way to Camelot, Merlin goes into heat for the first time. Things progress from there, as they are wont to do.


"I'm slightly embarrassed to admit (but speak the sad truth when I say) that I might have read this, like, three times already. This really isn't a kink I'd ever considered before. Yet, thanks to you and this and that other fic of yours, my head has been well and truly turned. Jesus this was hot."[1]
"This is very well written and intensely erotic. You beautifully captured the confusion of an adolescence that has Merlin becoming catnip to all the village toms. Did Hunith not explain what was happening because she didn't know or is there something shameful in being who Merlin is? Merlin spying on the knights and getting so wildly out of control had me thinking he was going to be pounced upon and passed around like a skin of wine. I guess he can count himself lucky that Arthur got to him first. His first sexual encounter was earth shaking, and it's telling that Arthur took him in a position that would become uncomfortable over the hours they were joined. It makes me think Merlin's not the only one that was out of control. I'm really looking forward to Merlin meeting up with Arthur again. I wonder what he's going to burn down this time...[2]
